The Government recently promulgated an ordinance to make changes to the Companies Act w.e.f. 2nd November 2018 with an aim to promote ease of doing business, ensure better corporate compliance and expedite insolvency proceedings etc.

The ordinance covers provisions to decriminalise several offences under the Companies Act, bring measures to curb shell companies etc. Recently Ministry of Companies Affairs has mandated unlisted public companies not to issue and allow transfer of shares of unlisted public companies other than in dematerialised form. In phased manner, all unlisted companies would be covered within its ambit. Further SEBI has recently amended relevant provisions to disallow listed companies from accepting request for transfer of securities, which are held in physical form with effect from December 5, 2018. The shareholders who continue to hold shares and other types of securities of listed companies in physical form even after this date, will not be able to lodge the shares with company / its RTA for further transfer.

To understand the provision of ordinance and issues arising on compulsory dematerialisation of shares, the Corporate Connect Committee of the Chamber of Tax Consultants has organised a Lecture meeting. Lecture meeting will broadly cover the rationale for the amendment, its impact on the corporate sector and other stakeholders.

This Lecture meeting will be of immense value not only to the company secretaries, legal practitioners and chartered accountants but to all professionals, corporate advisors and public at large. This is a free Lecture meeting open to all, even non-professionals and members of the general public.

All are cordially invited to take benefit of this unique lecture meeting
